What year did you join the orchestra?
I started playing violin in the orchestra in 2015 and became the accompanist for the Reno Phil Choir in 2018.
How long have you been playing music?
I have been playing music for the majority of my life! I started playing piano when I was four years old and violin when I was eight.
How did you pick your instrument?
My older brother was also involved in music so I took up the instruments that he was learning. I didn’t want to be left out!
I am a full time musician and student! Along with my work at the Phil, I am the organist at Reno First United Methodist Church and am currently pursuing a Master’s in Piano from UNR, where I hold a full time graduate teaching assistant-ship.
When you’re not playing with the Reno Phil, what would we most likely see you doing in your free time?
In my free time you can usually find me listening to music, going for a bike ride, or playing video games!
What genre of music are you most excited to play?
Lately I have really loved playing piano for musical theater! Theater can include many diverse styles of music and I enjoy the collaborative production process.
